Here, we provide links to interesting and what we find important, connections and information. It is a frightening thing to discover what has happened to our food here in the US, a country capable of feeding everyone within its borders, with healthy food, and yet 20 million children go to sleep hungry every night. Surprised at the increase in diabetes? Heart disease? Obese children/adults? Autism? Alzheimers? Seems a bit the same as the increase in use of genetically modified ("GM") foods, use of trans-fats instead of natural fats, and use of corn syrup (over 90% GM), and white bread (GMO, non-wholegrain and contains corn-syrup!). Know your farmer, know your food! Buy local, be healthy, be happy!
Farm Stand Building to arrive....
We are planning to add a farm stand to our property by spring of 2017! This will allow customers access to many more of our products on a daily basis, as well as educational opportunities. If you are interested in supporting us in this endeavor, please contact us! The building pictured may differ slightly from the one we actually obtain.
